2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow. For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.
On 19th.September we joined with two friends and enjoyed a day out at the Statfold Barn Railway near Tamworth in Staffordshire. It is an entirely private railway, built on a farm, and they hold 3 Enthusiasts Days each year when their own, and guest locomotives, run a steady number of trains over the three mile circular route across the fields. This series runs until Christmas Eve and you can find more details about the railway at http://www.statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk/
Another shot taken at the stabling point. The front loco is quite famous and its history can be found at http://www.statfoldbarnrailway.co.uk/locomotives_TRANGKIL.php . The loco behind is the Peckett 0-6-0T Hudddesfield. This is the 1944 built Harrogate Gas Works 0-6-0ST No 2050. Purchased from the Bredgar and Wormshill Railway in Kent it is in regular service on the railway.
